Senegalese Marabouts Compel Buhari to Order Closure of Aso Rock Church

President Buhari has been strictly advised by Senegalese marabouts hired by the Buhari administration to perform spiritual cleansing rites at the Aso Rock Villa to shut down the Aso Rock Villa Chapel, fresh facts emerged on Wednesday.

An informed source familiar with the details of the matter who spoke to BREAKING TIMES on Wednesday on condition of anonymity disclosed that President Buhari, acting on the advise of Senegalese marabouts who performed spiritual cleansing at the Aso Rock Villa prior to his relocation from the Defence House to Aso Rock, advised him to shut down the Aso Rock Chapel as its continued existence was affecting spiritual activities being conducted on behalf of the President.

It will be recalled that BREAKING TIMES first reported that President Buhari will not take residence at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa until the necessary “spiritual cleansing” has been carried out at the Villa by a team of Senegalese marabouts hired by the President. The Nigerian presidency denied the report.

Popular Nigerian online newspaper, The Trent broke the news of Buhari’s decision to close the Aso Rock church. According to the report dated Thursday, September 3, 2015, eyewitness accounts disclosed how heavily armed men stormed the Aso Rock Chapel on Sunday, August 30, 2015 denying worshippers access to the church. The Trent reported further that “Less than two months ago, the Children’s Church of the Villa Chapel where the wife of the Vice President, Mrs. Oludolapo Osinbajo worships with the children was closed down on orders from above. According to our source, “Security concerns were given as reasons for the closure of the Children’s Church.”

The report by The Trent was immediately rebuffed by stiff denials from the Nigerian presidency with a statement by presidential spokesman Femi Adesina vehemently denying that such an incident ever happened. Prince Laolu Akande, a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) and media adviser to Vice President Osinbajo also flatly denied the report in a set of tweets captured here:

A Vanguard newspaper report on Tuesday reiterated the earlier report by The Trent, quoting a source at the Presidency as saying: “As we speak, the children’s church remains shut and everything relating to the church has been removed. We had to beg them to allow us to remove our property. The children’s church has been turned into a store.”

According to Vanguard, “Informed Presidency sources familiar with the location of the Villa Chapel, which was built and inaugurated by President Olusegun Obasanjo, is said to be too close to Buhari’s bedroom and kitchen and must give way.”

In an attempt to strike a religious balance in anticipation of the public uproar that the decision could cause, President Buhari has also directed the relocation of the Aso Rock Mosque even though the location of the Villa Mosque has no bearing on the Villa Church noises reportedly disturbing President Buhari’s sleep.

    This online newspaper or whatever you call yourself should stop writing or covering news that are capable of dividing us, instead of uniting us.
    It does not matter whether such news articles are correct or not. What comes first & foremost is the unity, togetherness, peace, and love in the Country.
    Nigerian Journalists, radio, television and newspaper houses should & must play a major role in the PROMOTION OF UNITY, PEACE & LOVE IN THE Country like is being done in the developed Countries.

    Our President needs all the help & support from everybody to enable him successfully move our country forward.

    How on earth can any good thing come out of the government of this uncircumcised son of Funta-Jalon who keeps on dedicating the throne of Nigeria to the kingdom of darkness which the Senegalis Marabouts represent. Its high time the children of God in this nation rise up to the occation and decree an end to this buhari’s satanic regime.

    Let buharism try to do anything funny with that because it will result to massive aggressive earthquaking violent that this country can not bear, Buhari should know that worshiping God is fundamental human right as in constitution, therefore, he lacks the audacity $ sagacity to do $ he should also remember both muslems $ xtian voted him.
